I am currently working on a certain program wherein a certain cline segment will be converted to shape(version of allegro used is 16.5).. i was able to generate the shape by first getting the polygon object of the cline then use it on axlDBCreateShape.. refer to code below..
clineDbid = (dbid of cline to converted to shape)
polyDbid = car(axlPolyFromDB(clineDbid ?endCapType 'SQUARE))
axlDBCreateShape(polyDbid t layer netName)
The program works fine but the main problem is the shape fill type. As default, solid fill shape or dynamic copper type should be generated but whenever i run the program, static crosshatch type is generated.. I need the shapes generated to be in solid fill shape/dynamic type..
using path might solve the problem but it is difficult to create path from a cline object. because basically, corners of the cline still needs to be solved from width and strartEnd attributes to create a path, considering that clines comes from different angles. Any way, Thanks eDave for the support, I will update whatever I find out regarding this issue..
